    But that's going to take a long time, I think, 'cause last time I looked at a RISC-V board picture, which was quite recently, it was waaaaay too big to fit in a phone form factor.

    Let's hope so. We don't want yet another Openmoko-like failed company...

    Thanks for that. I wonder what the phones use stack wise tho. In terms of blobs for the hardware.

    Firefox OS was awesome. It's a shame Mozilla stopped it when it was finally becoming usable.

    I bet the reason why FirefoxOS wasn't a good choice is because the Firefox patents

    Kudos to them for still not having given up on doing touch with a suboptimal toolkit. I guess sometimes the harder road can be more fun.

    Just as soon as they release a riskv CPU that is actually comparable to most Arm cores
